Friday Faves

Some faves from this week!!

An unexpected 4-day weekend!! Last Friday we were hit with more snow round her so we had a snow day! I was actually bummed about because I was looking forward to the end of Catholic Schools Week Teacher Luncheon! And then on Sunday night we woke up to more snow!! Just Crazy!! So now all our snow days have been used. Fingers crossed Mother Nature is good to us for the rest of the year. I don't want to be going to school until July 4th!!  But on the upside there was this...
so it was a good day!!!

Booking a trip to Florida for May! YAY!! I am looking forward to the annual ( I guess it's an annual thing now!  LOL) Mother's Day trip down to see my parents! I was waiting for the prices to drop but I guess the fare I booked at is as good as it's going to get and I didn't want to wait anymore! You can read all about last year's trip here!

The return of TGIT! So EXCITED!! It has seriously been FOREVER!!! So tonight it's wine, friends, and TGIT!

Best Lent Ever! Last Sunday I went to Mass at one of my school's regional parishes. It was a great Mass! I loved the priest, his homily and the fact that the choir rocked out with guitars, a keyboard and tambourine! As I was reading the bulletin when I got home I noticed an ad for an email/video program called Best Lent Ever. It' s based on a book, called Rediscover Jesus, which my friend at work had told me about. I thought it sounded interesting and would be a great way to help me grow in faith this Lent. I really do need to rediscover Jesus in my life these days!! I have only been doing it three days but am thoroughly enjoying it.

Posted this photo to Instagram on Ash Wednesday!  I got this fortune on Tuesday when the Kindergarten class was celebrating Chinese New Year.  It really hit home with me on Ash Wednesday as I embark on the #BestLentEver!

Favorite Comments! My Wednesday post this week was titled Love is...
With Valentine's Day approaching I asked some students to tell me what Love is to them. They gave me honest thoughtful answers! I loved that when my friend Deena commented on the post, she included the response her son gave when she asked him the same.

Willis (Grade 3) said: Someone who cares for each other and they look out for each other.  It's when you like, I don't know, go on date??

 I loved his sweet answer and loved that my post was able to spark conversation among the two of them!!

Cute! Cute!!  Thanks for sharing Willis!!!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!!!

  4. We don't have snow days built into our calendar, so they just get tacked on to the end of the year. But, we haven't had one for two years now - boo! I loved Willis' comment too! Hope you had a great weekend!


Thanks so much for taking the time to post comments! They make me smile so big!
